Summer Lovin'

Published: 14 Feb 2020

We love an alfresco terrace whether it be roof, river or to the rear. Here's three options to consider when planning that summer party.

Somerset House launches summer river terrace packages 

Somerset House has begun selling its River Terrace space for summer events.

Set against the neo-classical backdrop of Somerset House, the River Terrace is a glamorous alfresco London setting with views across the Thames.

The indoor 200-capacity Seamen’s Hall is included as a wet weather contingency along with Jumbrellas, which cover part of the Terrace.

There are a range of catering options available including barbecue options from Clement Worrall, canapés and bowls from Alexander & Björk or innovative food stations from Bubble.

Production house Full Circle is on hand to provide a range of furniture and entertainment options from DJ’s to roving bands, large games and magicians.

Packages are available from June to September for parties of 150-500 guests. 

Prince Philip House announces terrace summer season

Prince Philip House will kick-start its summer season on 26th April with Teenage Cancer Trust taking over its terrace for a London Marathon celebration. 

Overlooking the Mall and St James’ Park, few addresses in the world can boast such a unique view.

With ornate columns stretching the length of the venue, the terrace extends along the back of Prince Philip House, towards the edge of the tree-lined Mall, where the foliage nestles against the terrace’s iconic cream balustrades. 

Stacey Barber, Sales and Marketing Manager said “Access to such a versatile outside space in Central London overlooking the Mall is a rarity, particularly one so quintessentially British.  With a capacity for 250 guests, the terrace is highly prestigious and has limited availability during the warmer British months - although marquees can be erected as a wet weather contingency as required.”

Sea Containers London to open terrace for summer 2020



Situated at the top of the iconic Sea Containers building on the South Bank, the roof terrace at Sea Containers London has panoramic 360 degree views and is surrounded by a glass barrier, making events feel like they’re floating on the London skyline.

The terrace is suitable for 200 people but the four-star hotel requests that planners book an inside space as well to serve as a wet weather contingency.
